Toddler Play Purse

For my niece's 2nd birthday I decided to make her a play purse and phone with several different fasteners so she could practice her fine motor skills.  I was inspired by this one that I saw on Pinterest, but I decided to make mine with pockets and use what I had, which meant no buckles.

The front features one snap pocket and one button pocket as well as a velcro tab to close the top of the purse.

The back features a zipper pocket.

I made a toy iPhone to go with the purse.  It has clear vinyl on the front to mimic a screen and a single button.  I imagined the dots in the center of the screen would represent the icons on the screen.  Apparently it is all a little too abstract for my niece, though; my brother tells me she keeps trying to find a way to open it.

The interior has a pocket to hold the phone.

I hear that my niece has been carrying it around with her everywhere, so I guess it was a success!
